Alan Schwartzberg is a well-known session drummer who worked with many artists.
He is a 'first-call' New York session drummer. He does everything from jingles to sound tracks to record dates, and he does them so well that he has had one of the longest running careers of any musician in this trendy, stressful and highly competitive business.
Allan has played with such diverse artists as Stan Getz, Peter Gabriel, Mountain and James Brown. He's also one of the original disco drummers, playing on such dance classics as Gloria Gaynor's Never Can Say Goodbye, Tony Camillo's Bazuka's Dynomite, and Meco's Theme From Star Wars. And the rampant sampling of James Brown's Funky President has made Allan's beat the sound of '90s hip-hop. Allan is one of the unsung heroes of this game. By way of introduction, I'll simply let Allan speak for himself.
